My Turn 

I believe the Beatles said it best: "Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstandi I 
you see." On September 11, 2001, Americans' eyes were opened. Even if only for a n I 
we came together for the most part. Yet, it will become a moment that will withstand 

As we look back to the events that have played out in front of us over the past yeai I 
could easily be drowned in emotions. 

September 1 1, 2001: Fear, pain, hopelessness and anger filled our bodies as we wi I 
nessed what could be the most historic event in our time unfold on our televisions. Sc I 
took their pain and anger to an extreme; blaming innocent people with the same skin 
or religion of those who perpetrated those evil events. 

September 1 1, 2002: Our thoughts and tears went out to those people who died, fc I 
could not shake the feelings that were present one year ago. The TV and radio were fi I 
memorials, even taking song requests for the dead. Even if one tried, we weren't allov\ I 
forget those events; let alone go through the day as if nothing were wrong. Often-thru | 
had to change channels to avoid being overwhelmed, only to find that even the comm 
showed the twin towers. 

Throughout this year, we have also seen our flag become a selling device. Profitin 
people's desire to be 'one nation,' countless ads feature the flag, or companies call the | 
selves "America's" company. T-shirts have been mass-produced and sold, and our flag 
become commercialized. 

Nearly every house on every street had some sort of patriotic item up, whether it 
flag or a sign that declared "United We Stand." Where were these displays before ove 
3,000 people perished? If we are, and have always been, "Proud to be American," whj 
take these attacks to open our eyes? 

Before September 1 1 , how many people actually flew their flags daily? How man) I 
dren had bedrooms styled in red, white and blue? Or how many people wore their "G I 
Bless America" shirt? Unfortunately, very few. It shouldn't have taken four plane eras I 
make Americans proud.

Leaders of tomorrow begin today with the Grizzly 
Ambassadors. From serving as the college's and presi- 
dent's official representatives to volunteering and 
boosting school spirit, they bring a sense of over- 
whelming pride and accomplishment to Butler County 
Community College. 

The Grizzly Ambassadors' main goal is to "repre- 
sent our college by supporting and promoting its val- 
ues." Those values include: helping out with the com- 
munity, demonstrating character, integrity and good 
communication skills, as well as being active in 
organizations and activities on and off campus. 

These are the requirements that must be met in 
order to be considered for the position of a Grizzly 
Ambassador: 

• Agree with and sign the Ambassador Contract 

• Maintain a G.P.A. of 2.75 or higher 

• Be active in organizations and activities on and 
off campus 

• Be a full-time student 

Aside from meeting the above requirements, a pos- 
sible candidate must submit an essay of 250 words or 
less explaining why they wish to be a student ambas- 
sador, including two references from faculty, staff or 
employer. 

Susan Spohn, White City freshman, says, "I think 
that a Grizzly Ambassador is someone who is willing 
to go out of their way to make this school more invit- 
ing to others. I think that they are the people that have 
the desire to get things done in all they do and make 



the best out of everything. An Ambassador is friendly 
and outgoing enough to help people." 

They show their overwhelming pride and enthusiasm 
by promoting attendance at all Butler events and repre- 
senting Butler all over the nation. This included attend- 
ing the Association of Student Advancement Programs 
(ASAP) international conference in St. Louis. This is 
where the Ambassadors had a chance to converse with 
other Ambassadors and learn leadership and etiquette 
skills. The group presented a speech about making a 
student group, like the Ambassadors, work within a 
two-year college. 

The conferences they attend are only a small portion 
of their many accomplishments. The Grizzly Growlers 
is one of the many steps they take in promoting and 
achieving school spirit. The Growlers are a Butler 
Athletic spirit section that offers all its members a T- 
shirt, free food and prime seating at all athletic events. 

In March the Ambassadors will once again take the 
plunge. The second annual polar bear plunge results in 
showing school spirit by jumping into the freezing El 
Dorado Lake. They also host movie nights for all Butler 
students. 

"We help with many BCCC events, usually presiden- 
tial or foundation/alumni functions," says Heidi Hulse, 
Advisor. "We also help with Butler County events- 
Celebration of Freedom parade, any festivals. We do 
this as goodwill ambassadors for the college. These stu- 
dents are the best of the best and we want to show these 
students off to our alums and to our community."

Since the group works so closely, many of the activities planned 
have been designed to increase friendship between the members. In 
May 2002, members of the executive committee joined together for 
a night of planning, fun and goal setting. 

Becky Klein, Udall freshman, says, "Some of the benefits of 
being an Ambassador is a sense of acomplishment. Also we are 
strictly a volunteer group and with all of the activities that we put 
together and contribute to, it makes you feel good. We willingly 
give back to the school and community."

Six men re-built 

the (virtual) 
Campus 

Story and Photos by 
Anthony Carver 

The campus is continually 
changing. Every year new addi- 
tions are made at Butler, whether 
it's in El Dorado or on any other 
Butler site. Seven years ago, the 
1500 building was completed on 
the El Dorado Campus; last year 
Cummins Hall was finished. But 
this year, a digital campus was 
completely remade. 

Roughly six months ago, 
planning for this new change began. 
The Web Services Department set 
out to create and implement an 
entirely new website, unlike any of 
its predecessors. Web Services con- 
sists of one, main Butler employee, 
four Tech-Es and one student 
worker. At the end of last semes- 
ter, work began to give the old 
website a new look. Over the sum- 
mer, one of the Tech-Es, Tyler 
Norris, a Butler alumnus from El 
Dorado, came up with a workable 
design. 

"Everyone helped with the 
design in one way or another," 
Norris says. "I came up with the 
initial design, and then Andy 
(Jacques), the Director of Web 
Services, built the top piece and 
everyone else took it from there." 
The team worked diligently all 
summer long to create the new site, 
and to have it running by the time 
the new semester started. But that 
did not leave them without their 
complications. "Everything would 
seem to come together smoothly, 
then a big problem would occur,

taking weeks to solve," says Zach 
Smoot, a Tech-E and Butler alum- 
nus from Leon, working for Web 
Services. Even with these prob- 
lems they managed to put the new 
site online in time. The new site 
still has a few wrinkles but the 
team is continually working to find 
and iron them out.

The Old 

Butler's website receives a 
facelift every two years; however, 
this year was heavy reconstructive 
surgery. The old website had been 
an improvement from its predeces- 
sor. When users logged onto the 
Internet and went to 



www.bucc.cc.ks.us, they'd come to 
a 24 kilobyte page that loaded a 
small flash movie telling some 
facts about Butler, and why people 
come here. 

The site had over 15,000 pages 
full of content. Some more organ- 
ized than others, but each were 
unmistakably a part of Butler. The 
template of that site contained the 
overhead graphic, the bottom links 
and the side graphic. That is all 
that unified the thousands of pages 
of information. It wasn't until last 
year that Pipeline came into the 
picture, which significantly 
increased the use of the site, also 
making it much more interactive. 

The site had its ill happenings 
as well. For example, the 
flash movie caused large problems 
for anyone who did not have Flash 
installed on their computer. The 
person would be stuck at the intro- 
duction screen, and there was no 
way to move on. Another problem 
was that not all of the pages had 
enough content to really inform 
anyone of anything. 

There was also an issue of the 
simple look. Smoot comments, 
"The old website wasn't as profes- 
sional as what we were capable of; 
the new site shows more talent, 
imagination and originality."

The New 

With all of that said, we now 
can forget the old, and move ahead 
into the new. On Aug. 1 5 around 
7 p.m., Butler's webpage stepped 
into the World Wide Web with its 
new look, easier accessibility, bet- 
ter organization and all-around 
more powerful interface, comments 
Smoot. Some might say the site 
went online a little premature 
because of some errors that accom- 
panied the new look of the site. 
Nine times out of ten nothing new 
gets online or onto the shelf with- 
out a few bugs. Despite the diffi- 
culty, the site is now operating just 
fine. 

"Our website is changing 
every day, and those changes are a 
result of user feedback," Andy 
Jacques, the Director of Web 
Services, comments. With the new 
professional look, the college is 
hoping that it will pull more people 
in, along with improving the image 
of the college. 

There is a slight new organiza- 
tion to the new site, which people 
will need a little time to become 



Aca< 
Grizzly 



accustomed to, but overall it's an 
improvement that needed to be 
made, says Daniel Webster, a soph- 
omore from El Dorado who uses 
the service. 

The new site includes pull- 
down menus, and more options, 
that are clearer and easier to use. 
On the top piece of the webpage, a 
Pipeline logon appears, along with 
the "Take me to" menu, a search 
box and a new navigation bar. On 
the bottom, there is text navigation 
for anyone who needs it. Another 
improvement made for each main 
department page includes a unique 
image has been created to give that 
department an independent profes- 
sional look, Norris says. 

Most don't realize how much 
money goes into web design com- 
panies. If the college had gone to 
an outside company they would

have spent roughly a quarter mil- 
lion dollars on the new site, but by 
going through Butler's own depart- 
ment they didn't even spend 
$1,000, according to Jacques. 



Campus Impact 

The college is hoping this new 
site catches the eye of many new, 
young prospective students. 

"I think that our new website is 
a very large improvement, giving 
us one of the best college sites in 
the state," says Norris. Even the 
teachers and students have a high 
opinion of the new look. Mrs. 
Emily Mathias, English instructor, 
comments, "I think it's very attrac- 
tive and easy to use." 

Becky Lee, a sophomore from 
Rose Hill, says, "The website has 
definitely improved from last year. 
It's much easier to find the infor- 
mation that you are looking for." 

"I think the website is a very 
vital tool provided for students," 
says Holly Acton, a freshman from 
Oakley. 

It's clear that the website has 
caught attention. It is yet to be 
known whether or not the website 
will bring more students to the 
campus. What we do know is that 
it's a major improvement for the 
campus and its students, according 
to the online poll listed to the side.

Fast rides, popcorn, cotton candy and 
entertainment are just a few things that begin 
to describe the Kansas State Fair. Butler stu- 
dents were involved in many events there. 
Butler's livestock team competed at the state 
fair. Erin Roach took first place in oral reasons, 
Shellie Moore claimed first place for the swine 
contest and Wendy Lynn took first place for 
the sheep contest. Students also helped with 
the admissions booth that ran throughout the 
fair. The Headliners performed old songs and 
also selections that celebrated the country's 
independence. Besides the admissions booth, 
livestock judging team and the Headliners, 
Butler students enjoyed the rides, food, con- 
tests and entertainment.

The most recent play at Butler was "A Gown 
for His Mistress" by Georges Feydeau. Based 
in France during the 1930s, the Marx Brothers 
play was preformed by the Theatre department 
on Oct 10-12. The performance, seen by a nearly 
sold out audience in the 700 building, marked 
the continued success of this department. 

The actors who performed in the play prac- 
ticed Monday through Friday nights from 6:30- 
9:30 p.m. Students were chosen in part for their 
availability for the many nights they were to 
practice. Theatre instructor Bob Peterson's goal 
was to find students that could dedicate the most 
time for the play. 

The building of the set involved all the stu- 
dents in the theatre practicum classes. Although 
long hours were involved, the students seemed to 
enjoy the hard work that goes on behind the 
scenes to build and produce a play of this mag- 
nitude. 

Teamwork, dedication and great teachers 
helped the students to make a wonderful play.

Travel signature, visa and "out of status." 
Out of ideas? These words all relate to the process 
of becoming an international student. Butler, as of 
this semester, has 665 international students. 
Spread over seven campuses, most students are 
centered in Andover and El Dorado. 

At August orientation at the Andover campus, 
students were introduced to the world of Butler. 

International students come from all over the 
world. The chart on the following page shows the 
top ten countries the international students come 
from. 

After introductions, those present at the meet- 
ing played bingo with international terms such as 
travel signature, visa and "out of status." Travel 
signatures are the foreign students' advisors' sig- 
natures and are required if international students 
want to return to their home country. A visa is a 
document given to an international

Services) policies. Then, they moved on 
to the college's policies. 

After the meeting was over, all the 
international students and advisors had an 
informal discussion. Nir Ziv, third-year 
student from Israel, passed along his 
words of wisdom to the freshmen, "Take 
it easy and ask questions." 

Many of the international stu- 
dents, even though they are required to 
have English proficiency to be admitted, 
are afraid to speak because of how the 
American students may react to their sen- 
tence structure and accents. The language 
barrier is one of the most difficult situa- 
tion to deal with when coming to 
America, according to Ziv and other 
international students. 

Additionally, finding a place to 
live and providing a source of income are 
difficult situations for the students to face 
as well. International students are not to 
work off campus in their first year at 
Butler. Most of the money needed to 
attend Butler comes from the students' 
pockets. However, many students have a 
sponsor back home that will provide the 



students with the cash needed during the years 
of their studies. 

According to Pam Hendrix, international 
students secretary, many of the international 
students come to the United States to study 
because of the good educational opportunities 
the higher educational institutions provide.

idents and have been friends for many years. Nathan is a member ^ 
of the Lantern staff and is working on his Associate in Arts 
Degree. Also known as Tin Man and Triumph (TNT), Nathan 
and Jordan flow like they have been doing this for years... and 
they have been. Due to their love of hip-hop, TNT and a few 
friends have the dream of starting their own label named OZ 
Records. This is difficult due to the fact that local hip-hop is the 
underground of the underground, but once their sound gets out 
they shouldn't have any problems getting the ball rolling. 
Currently TNT is sorting through piles of material that will be 
compiled into an album. It will hopefully be available in the near 
future.

Lately, we've seen a rise in the amount of hard music. A little over a dec 
many other heavy metal groups ruled the music charts. Painizart has its roots in this style that is slowly making 
its way back into the view of the music scene. Butler student Sean Hocker is the bassist for the band. Sean trav- 
els to Butler from Wichita to major in music and work on his Associate in Arts Degree. He accompanies Jared 
Cober (drums/back-up vocals) and Justin Cober (guitar/lead vocals). They practice on a regular basis in Topeka. 
This means loading all the equipment into their vehicles, driving, unloading, practicing and then the return trip. 
However, one of their recent trips took them to Lawrence where they recorded their first album. After eight hours 
of playing and five days of mixing, the five songs that are featured on the "Stigma" album were completed. They 
hope to have the album out within the month. I had the chance to hear some of their demo tracks. Their songs 
are little harder than what I usually listen to, but have a definite groove to them. Heavy metal bands like Pantera 
and Slayer can be felt in Painizart's hard pulse pounding style. Listen to 88. 1 KBTL in the near future to hear 
the debut of the band."! like to play music and get some of my ideas out there," says Sean. "I want to be a rock star."

Butler students and El Dorado residents Dave 
Kerwood and Caleb McNary are a part of Yesterday's 
Lost. Dave's major is liberal arts and Caleb's is Mass 
Communications and both are working on their 
Associate in Arts. The band includes Dave 
(vocals/guitar), Caleb (rhythm guitar), Brianna 
Kerwood (backup vocals) and Abby Ready (drums). 
Yesterday's Lost has been together for about one year 
and is well along in perfecting their sound. They 
describe their music as light to "bluesy" rock. 
Yesterday's Lost usually plays at churches as worship 
leaders. However, they have also played at Taylor's 
Place in Wichita and recently at the Walnut River 
Festival here in El Dorado. There are not any plans 
to release anything soon, but to keep informed visit 
their website at www. angelf ire . com/rnb/yester-

Case Of the Mondays is another band that has its 
roots in the church. Jon Brickley, from here in El 
Dorado, is the Butler student of this crew. He is 
majoring in journalism to receive his Associate in 
Arts degree and is a member of the Lantern staff. I 
had the privilege of experiencing their music during 
their regular Thursday performance for a youth 
group. Jon Brickley (guitar/vocals), Jana Barnes 
(vocals), Brian Nelson (drums), Brian Gensch (key- 
board/backup vocals), James Hansen (bass) and 
Aaron Pew (bongos) combine their musical talents to 
inspire the teens that attend. Their melodic flow, 
reminiscent of Jars of Clay and 3rd Day, easily keeps 
the attention of anyone listening. Case of the 
Mondays is also in the midst of releasing its first 
album which will be called "From 7 to 12" and is 
scheduled for release in November. Case of the 
Mondays had a connection through their drummer 
with Mike Fulson who owns his own recording stu- 
dio in Nashville. They went there for a week and a 
half to record the nine songs that will be on the CD.

A school remembers and a nation mourns. 
It has been a year since America lost its inno- 
cence. Early Tuesday morning on Sept. 1 1 , 
200 1 , America watched horrified, as two 
planes crashed into both towers of the World 
Trade Center. At 7:46 a.m. 
CDT, American Airlines 
Flight 1 1 crashed into the 
side of the north tower. 
News broadcasts from all 
over the United States 
picked up the story. At 8:03 
a.m. United Airlines Flight 
175 crashed into the south 
tower. At that moment it 
became clear this was no 
accident. 

At 8:29 a.m., rescue 
workers and firefighters 
rushed to the foot of the 
World Trade Center as the 
upper floor blazed. On an 
ordinary day a good 50,000 
people would be working in 
the towers. At 8:30 a.m., a 
grim faced President Bush 
declared, "We have had a 
national tragedy. Two air- 
planes have crashed into the 
World Trade Center, an 
apparent terrorist attack on 
our country." 

At 8:40 a.m. American Airlines Flight 77 
crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, 
D.C. One side of the five-sided building burst 
into flames and collapsed. 

At 8:45 a.m. the White House and the 
Capitol were evacuated. 

At 8:58 a.m. a dispatcher in Pennsylvania 
received a call from a passenger on United 
Airlines Flight 93 who said, "We are being 




hijacked! We are being hijacked!" Several passengers 
on this flight attempted to contact relatives to let them 
know they loved them and they were going to try to 
take back the plane. At 9:03 a.m., United Airlines 
Flight 93 crashed 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. 

At 9:05 a.m., America 
watched in astonishment as the 
south tower collapsed. Many 
rescue workers and firefighters 
were crushed along with many 
others who were unable to make 
it out. At 9:29 a.m., we watched 
again as history repeated itself 
right before our very eyes as the 
north tower collapsed, taking 
many more lives with it. 

Now, a year later, we 
remember those who lost their 
lives as well as those who helped 
save lives in this tragic turn of 
events. Fire Chief Brad Smith of 
El Dorado and his department 
have been greatly affected by the 
events of September 1 1 . 

"We have secured the build- 
ing more, as well as the equip- 
ment," Smith says. He believes 
America has changed since Sept. 
11. 

"I think we [Americans] have 
come back with more resolve of 
who we are and who we repre- 
sent." 
Police Chief Richard Clark of El Dorado believes 
now that "United We Stand" has a different meaning to 
Americans. " We as a nation will stand together against 
our enemies," Clark says. 

Shawn Davis, an El Dorado resident and sophomore, 
says, "I think we should live our lives to the fullest."

Davis says, " I believe security was too relaxed 
that day and we had our guard down." 

Since the events of September 1 1 more people 
have been finding ways to show their love for their 
country. 

Many Americans have shown their patriotism in 
profuse ways. Chip Whitely, an El Dorado fresh- 
man, decided to show his love for his country by 
turning his truck into an American flag. Serving 
eight years in the U.S. Army, Whitely has an 
extraordinary love for his country. Although many 
have responded in positive ways when seeing 
Whitely 's truck, not everyone has the same opinion, 

People all over have found their own ways just 
like Whitely to show their patriotism. Two popular 
country songs came out representing the events: 
"Where Were You when the World Stopped 



Turning?" by Alan Jackson and "Courtesy of the Red, 
White and Blue (The Angry American)" by Toby Keith. 
President Kennedy said it best, "Ask not what your 
country can do for you, but what you can do for your 
country." 







El Dorado R€IV€mb€rS. The El Dorado Fire and Police Departments remember September 1 1 by holding a memorial service. Above, 
the Police Department raises the flag. First, it was raised to full height and then it was lowered to half mast. That is where it stayed to remember 
those who lost their lives and those who risked their lives saving others.

Home Away From Home 

Story and Photos by Kristin Sunley 



Where would you prefer to live? Is it better to 
live on campus or off campus? These are questions 
we all had to ask ourselves as summer came to an end 
and classes started back up again. 

This fall, 8,809 students are enrolled at Butler 
County Community College. The dorms are full, 
housing 377 students. Janece English, Director of 
Residence Life, says, "We had 54 men and 54 women 
on the waiting list this year." 

According to Elizabeth Crickard, Information 
Coordination Specialist, there are 608 students 
enrolled here that are El Dorado residents. This 
includes students that grew up here, and are still liv- 
ing with their parents, and students that have decided 
to live on their own off campus. 

Vice President for Student Services Bill 
Rinkenbaugh estimated that 10-15 percent of the peo- 
ple on the waiting list decided not to come to Butler 
because they couldn't get 
campus housing. This does 
not include the students that 
inquired about Butler and, 
after finding out there was a 
waiting list for dorms, decid- 
ed to look into other colleges 
Currently, there are no plans 
to build new dorms. 
However, an architect is com- 
ing in to look at renovating 
the West Hall. 

Once the dorms are filled 
up, the college does every- 
thing they can to help stu- 
dents find other suitable 
housing alternatives. Kacie 
Johnson, Admissions 
Counselor, works with the 
Chamber of Commerce and 
the landlords in town to gather a list of available 
places where students can rent. Johnson says, "We 
run and hand out 300 copies of the Housing Guide." 

Students also find the local Shoppers' Guide help- 
ful. It has an updated list that includes a short 
description of the place, the price and a number to 
call to set up an appointment with the renter. 
Rinkenbaugh says, "A student's success is my ulti- 
mate goal. We would like to accommodate any stu-

dent that wants to come to Butler." 

What are the advantages of living in the resi- 
dence halls? Jennifer Hedberg, 20, Reading sopho- 
more, says, "You don't have to find a parking space 
every day. If you've forgotten something, it's a 
five minute walk to go back and get your stuff." 

Most students would agree that the big advan- 
tage is the convenience. Pretty much everything 
needed is available within walking distance. 
Students can walk to class and other activities on 
campus instead of having to drive. 

Another common advantage to living in the res- 
idence halls is getting to know more people. Jenny 
Cordts, 19, Wamego sophomore, says, "I wouldn't 
want to leave the dorms because I really love the 
girls in my hall. We see each other all the time. 
We go to lunch and dinner together. They make 
me laugh, and we have a lot of fun." 

Security is another 
plus. Rinkenbaugh says, 
"The outside doors are 
locked; there is a closed 
circuit TV system to 
monitor the halls and 
the parking lot." 

Most students feel 
like living in the dorms 
is a safe environment. 
Sarah Boyer, 18, 
Independence freshman, 
says, "I haven't had any 
reason not to feel safe. 
The cameras and 
locked doors make me 
feel safer." 

Cordts says, "I feel 
safe because I'm never 
out by myself. There's 
always enough people outside and the campus is lit 
up at night." 

English says, "The side doors lock at 7 p.m. 
and the front doors lock at midnight through the 
week and 1 a.m. on the weekends." The cameras 
are not monitored at all times. "If something hap- 
pens, then we go back and review the camera 
tapes. I do have my camera monitors on in my 
office and periodically look at the monitor."

Lutich time! Butler students wait in line to get their food. 
The cafeteria is a popular place to be over the noon hour. 

Another issue that should be considered while 
finding housing is food. Students that live in East, 
Cummins and West are required to purchase the meal 
plan. The meal plan costs $1,324 for a year, and it 
includes 19 meals a week in the cafeteria. The bene- 
fits of the meal plan are that students don't have to 
worry about spending the money or taking the time to 
get groceries, cook a meal or clean up afterwards. 
The meal plan is seen as an advantage to some, and 
to others as a disadvantage. Some students express 
their concern about having to pay for 19 meals a 
week when they don't actually eat all of their meals in 
the cafeteria. 

Hedberg says, "I think that if you don't use all of 
your meals, you should get reimbursed at the end of 
the year, because it is money 
that could be used else- 
where." 

Other students complain 
about how the menu seems 
to repeat itself. Daniel 
Johnson, 18, Wichita fresh- 
man, says, "It's the same 
food every day." 

Kim Stohs, 20, Wamego 
sophomore, who lived in the 
dorms last year, but is in an 
off campus apartment this 
year, says, "Buying gro- 
ceries and cooking is cheap- 
er than cafeteria food, but 
it's more time consuming. I 
only have a half hour lunch 
break and it takes five min- 
utes to get

back, which cuts into 
my time left to enjoy 
my food." 

What are some of 
the advantages to liv- 
ing off campus? Scott 
Roberts, 20, Salina 
sophomore, says, 
"More freedom. It's 
kind of nice not hav- 
ing anyone around, no 
roommates. You don't 
have 50,000 people 
living in the same 
complex." Although 
he adds, "It gets lone- 
ly after awhile." 

Students that live 
off campus tend to 
have more of a sense 

of freedom and independence. They have less rules 
to follow, but more responsibilities. Brandi Williams, 
19, LeRoy sophomore, says, "It seems like your pay- 
ing bills constantly, whereas when you live in the 
dorms you pay a flat fee in the beginning." 

For some people, living off campus helps to save 
some money. By having a roommate or two, the bills 
are divided up and the overall price might end up 
being cheaper. Lacey Prokish, 18, Wamego fresh- 
man, says, "The big advantage of living off campus is 
it's cheaper and there is more living space." 

More living space is another common advantage. 
Williams says, "You don't have any personal space in 

the dorms. My apartment has 
bigger closets and more storage 
space." However, she adds, 
"There's more cleaning to do 
because there's more space." 

Williams lived in the dorms 
last year, and overall she prefers 
living in an apartment. "It's more 
like home. You can actually dec- 
orate. For example, you can 
hang pictures and curtains." 

Preferences of living arrange- 
ments vary for different people. 
There are advantages and disad- 
vantages to wherever you choose 
to live. Hopefully you have 
found a place that is a home 
away from home.

SAY CHEESE! Kimberly Stohs, 20, sophomore at Butler, 
takes time out for a picture with Michelle during vacation 
Bible school. Michelle is just one of the children that Kimberly 
got close with during the week of her mission trip. 



Sometimes it seems as though life 
just isn't fair. People don't always treat 
others with kindness like they should and 
it can really hurt. There is a verse in the 
Bible that says, 

"If someone strikes you on one 
cheek, turn to him the other also. If some- 
one takes your cloak, do not stop him 
from taking your tunic. Give to everyone 
who asks you, and if anyone takes what 
belongs to you, do not demand it back. 
Do to others as you would have them do 
to you." (Luke 6:29-31) 

You might be thinking to your- 
self. . .what does that mean!? 

Basically it is saying treat people with 
the utmost respect and love even if they 
don't do it in return. Helping others and 
giving to them what they might not be 
able to give themselves is such a reward- 
ing feeling, according to Kimberly Stohs. 
This is just one girl's story of the rewards 
of helping others. 

In August 2001, Stohs, a sophomore at 
Butler, went on a mission trip to 
Arlington, Texas with her youth group 
from Trinity Baptist in Wamego. 

Mission Arlington is a foundation 
founded by Tillie Burgin in August of 
1986. The goal of Mission Arlington is to

reach the people of the city and bring 
them to Christ. The mission provides 
Bible studies and church services in 
apartment buildings around Arlington. 

Mission Arlington also provides for 
the people's physical needs by giving 
them clothing, fans, air conditioning, fur- 
niture, food and many other things they 
may need. 

The youth group was split up into two 
different teams each day. The two teams 
were sent out to two different apartment 
complexes to help with vacation Bible 
schools. Stohs was in charge of games 
for the vacation Bible school called 
Rainbow Express for her team. She had a 
lot of fun doing it. A sometimes challeng- 
ing factor for Stohs during Rainbow 
Express was the language barrier. A lot of 
the children that go to Rainbow Express 
speak Spanish. It did help that some of 
the children were bilingual and were will- 
ing to help them translate. 

When asked what her favorite part of 
Rainbow Express was, Stohs says, "The 
best part of Rainbow Express for me was 
spending time with the children and real- 
ly bonding with them. Even with a short 
amount of time you realize what an 
impact you make on their lives and see 
how much they really look up to you." 




was a camp counselor I 
at a 4-H church camp for 
5th and 6th grade girls. It 
was a very rewarding 
experience because I feel 
like I touched their lives 
and that they went away 
with a greater appreciation 
for life and a better under- 
standing of God." 



Jennifer Hedberg, 20, 
sophomore at Butler 




"I went on a mission trip to 
Kentucky with people from 
my church. I helped to put 
a new roof on a trailer, 
siding on a warehouse, 
and worked in the clothing 
shelter. The best part was 
probably playing basketball 
and getting to know differ- 
ent people. I also had the 
opportunity to pray with 
this guy who was hurting. 
I felt that the trip was a 
very neat experience."

"I volunteered at a camp in 
Missouri for three weeks 
over the summer. I spent 
time with kids around the 
age of 1 and I had a lot of 
fun with them. Through 
all of that I have found t 
I really like helping kids out 
and being able to serve 
others. I had such an 
awesome time that I plan 
on going back for ten 
weeks next summer." 

Michael Goodson, 20, 
sophomore at Butler 



"I have volunteered for 
several different soup 
kitchens in Great Bend as 
well as Hutchinson. I 
helped prepare meals, 
stock the pantry, clean 
after meals, and deliver 
food to those who couldn't 
make it there themselves. 
The most rewarding part of 
it all was just hearing the 
people say 'thank you.' 
They were just so grateful 
for everything."

ore at Butler 




Jesus Loves the Little 
Children About an average 
of 50 kids showed up every 
day to Rainbow Express. 
Despite the language barri- 
er, the youth really bonded 
with the children at the 
apartments, according to 
Kimberly Stohs. (Courtesy

According to Stohs, Rainbow 
Express leads hundreds of children to 
Christ each summer, and when you are a 
part of it you really get to see how God 
works in people's lives. Stohs knew of 
at least one child that was led to Christ 
during the week that she was there. 

Stohs also talked about the 
rewards of going on the mission trip. 
She felt there were so many rewards for 
going. She said most of the kids are 
home alone all day long, even those as 
young as five and six. 

Stohs says, "We just try to love 
them the best we can and brighten up 
their week. The best reward, though, is 
that the kids get used to you coming to 
their apartments at that certain time 
every day and they are just sitting out- 
side, waiting for you on the steps. Then 
when you pull up in the van they all 
come running towards you, and it's a 
great feeling." 

The mission trip really made an 
impact on Stohs' life and left her with a 
lot of good memories and a better appre- 
ciation for life. 

When asked what the mission 
trip taught her, she responded with, 
"Helping others made me more humble, 
and have a love for others. It taught me 
how to be grateful for the things and 
people God has blessed me with. It 
also taught me to be a humble person 
in my everyday life and not just while I 
was on the mission trip." 



Because of last year's mission 
trip, Stohs had such a passion for it that 
she went again this summer. 

Stohs says, "God can show you 
how much is needed in just one week 
away from home." 

Because of the mission trip she 
said it made her want to help out more 
people and show the love that God has 
for us. 

When asked if she would recom- 
mend others on going on mission trips, 
she says, "I would recommend the trip 
to others because it teaches so much 
about yourself and just puts your life 
into perspective. This trip humbled me 
so much. It was just a tremendous learn- 
ing experience and I would recommend 
it to everyone." 

Stohs wanted to clarify for those 
"nonbelievers" out there that, "Mission 
trips and serving people doesn't have to 
be about religion or anything like that. 
It's all about helping others, when they 
can't help themselves."

see tne game y 
on the field, but what they don't 
see is the work the players are put- 
ting in off the field. There is a lot 
more to being a football player ;%j^ 
than just learning the plays. 

The grueling schedule of a 
football player would be hard for 
any student to handle. The main 
focus for any athlete needs to be 
academics. Jessica Simmons, 
Athletic Academic Advisor, says, 
"I stress to the players that without 
being successful in the classroom 
there is no football." 

As their Academic Advisor, 
Simmons needs to make sure that 



the players are enrolled 
in a minimum of 12 hours and that 
the courses will transfer to the 
next institution. To maintain their 
eligibility and scholarship thes^.:, 
athletes must pass 12 hours with a s 
2.0 GPA each semester. In order 
to help ensure successful 
completion of courses, Simmons 
requires mandatory study halls 
twice a week. 

"This time is provided for 
the players to study or do any 
homework that is needed. Due to 
their hectic schedules it is difficult 
for them to set aside the time 
necessary for academics," 
Simmons says. 



Sophomore linebacker 
Marcus Lawrence's schedule 
proves just that. The South 
Carolina native starts out his day 
at 8 a.m. with classes and ends at 
1 p.m. From there he goes to 
study hall till 2 p.m. and then 
straight to team meetings. The 
training room is his next 
destination where he receives 
treatment for injuries. Practice 
begins around 3 p.m. and doesn't 
end until 6 p.m. Lawrence has an ^ 
hour to regroup and grab a bite to 
eat before going to the weight 
room to lift weights at 7 p.m. 
Curfew begins at 1 1 p.m. so there 
isn't much time left for 
socializing, relaxing and studying 
before he has to do it all over th 
next day.

In time, I will learn to keep my 
grades up because they are the most 
important part. People can't go far 
without education." 

Off the field it is a whole 
different game. The players have 
more to focus on than tackles and 
touchdowns. Simmons says, 
"Education is the key to success in 
life, not only on the field but off the 
field as well."

The women's soccer team 
began season play on August 24, 
2002. The women's soccer team is 
new to Butler, under the leadership of 
Amy Van Heukelem. 

Van Heukelem comes to Butler 
from Central College in Pella, Iowa. 
She has the most wins in that school's 
history after a four-year stay. 

The women on the team are 
from all over, including as far as Lees 
Summit, Mo. and Omaha. The 
women on the team are captains Tisha 
Rolling, Wichita sophomore, Erin 
League, Lees Summit sophomore, 
and Tara Mosier, Wichita sophomore. 
Also on the team are Shelby Latimer,

man and Amy Wagner, 
Hutchinson freshman. 

Team members also 
include Chancey Buchman, 
McPherson sophomore; Jessica 
Wayne, Wichita freshman; and 
Sylvia Salgado, Wichita fresh- 
man. 

The women's first game 
was Saturday, Aug. 24, against 
Neosho County, where they 
proved victorious. Butler won 
15-0. It wasn't until they trav- 
eled next to Allen County that 
they would be tested. They won 
2-1 in overtime. 

On Saturday, Aug. 3 1 , 
the Butler women's soccer team 
lost their first game to Dodge 
City here at home. 

"It was our third game in 



a week," said coach Van 
Heukelem. 

The women's team went 
on a winning streak, defeating 
Barton County, 3-0, Cloud 
County 2-0, Neosho County 
1 1 -0, and receiving a forfeit from 
Mid-American Nazarene College. 

After a five game winning 
streak, Butler began to fall short. 
On Sept. 1 9, they lost to Northern 
Oklahoma, 4- 1 . After a 2-1 loss 
in overtime to Friends University, 
the team had many obstacles to 
jump over.

"Goalkeeper, Amy Adamson, 
must have had around 14 
saves," says Van Heukelem. 

After the game they had 
to recover from their injuries 
before they faced the biggest 
games of their season. They 
continued to fall short to 
Southwestern, 2-1, John Brown 
University, 4-1, and Johnson 
County, 2-0. 

"This is only our first 
season and we can't go any- 
where but up," says Van 
Heukelem.
